Yeah, Woody has a shaved butt for the pain patch... And shaved leg for the IV, and the very obvious shaved neck.
Poor guy still has some serious pain even on major drugs on top of the patch. It's breaking my heart, but I know it's going to be OK in the long run. The fact that I can't explain that to him is the really sucky part.
Kinsella, I am so sorry to hear about your pup! Stay strong, things will only get better! My dachsie is pretty well 100 percent recovered from his C 6-7 surgery in late January. Every once in awhile he will turn or move a certain way he will let out a small sqeak. Tell me out the pocket book! This same dachsie had C 6-7 done 3 years ago and T 12-13 done 5 years ago! D*mn dachshunds!!!!!
Sending healing wishes for your doggie!
